Chanel Rouge Allure Intense Coromandel Review

September 5, 2012

Chanel Rouge Allure in Coromondel ($34)  is a beautiful red with a slight shimmery pearl texture. Long-time Chanel lovers may recall that Chanel released a nail polish with the same name a few years back. Now the name is back, in a slightly different red, in a highly pigmented, highly moisturizing lipstick formula. Like Dior Ara Red, Chanel Coromandel is unapologetic, bold, and gorgeous. Swatches with the other Chanel Rouge Allure Intense lipsticks that I currently have:

Here is Liz wearing Chanel Coromandel along with the Nars Andy Warhol Flowers 1 palette on her eyes and Nars Andy Warhol Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Silver Factor as a messy below-the-eye eyeliner. She’s also wearing Chanel Tweed Fucshia blush.

 As you can see, Chanel Coromandel leans a touch warm (although not as warm as Chanel Incandescente). Close up: 

 Bottom line: So far, so good. These seem more pigmented and intense to me than the former Rouge Allure line. Also, they feel more moisturizing. I’m looking forward to exploring some of the cooler-toned and neutral shades. Chanel Coromandel is an awesome color for a bold, confident and glamourous look.

Disclosure: Nars sent the Nars/Andy Warhol Flowers 1 Palette and Nars Soft Touch Shadow Pencil Silver Factory without charge for consideration for review.

    I can’t wait to try some of these now! How similar is this to the Coromandel Rouge Allure Laque?

      I’m sorry that was one product that I missed. I wish I had it in my stash–alas I do not! 🙁

    Oh wow, Chanel released such a beautiful lipstick collection! Must swatch soon. This is such a gorgeous red. It looks beautiful on Liz. Unfortunately, I’m a bit scared to wear such bold colours. I’m seriously tempted now though….

    Claudia, try it as a stain. I have several of the brighter ones including Coromandel and Incandescente and love them that way!

    What are you thinking about the Palpitante……… is that a good one to get?

      I’ll do a full review–It’s going to look awesome on someone who wants to have a strong, gorgeous color.
